How to get json data from REST api in SharePoint 2013 list?


2 Answers 2


Elaborating a bit on Roman's answer:

    url: "http://thisRestServiceURL",
    type: "GET",
    headers: { 
        "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
        "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
        "X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val(),

This would work for JQuery sending/receiving JSON Data.

  • Add this code to SharePoint site via CEWP? Thanks a lot for help.

  • Sure you can, but if you're unsure of how to use JQuery to pull SharePoint JSON Data start learning, good resources: api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax for JQuery ajax command and msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj163876.aspx for the SharePoint REST API overview.

    ...one last thing, you'll probably find the Script Editor Web Part: community.bamboosolutions.com/blogs/sharepoint-2013/archive/… easier.

  • I'm presuming you've thought out your display mechanism, perhaps open a second question and show us the code you've written thus far?

You should pass Accept header, for example: "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose"

  • Yes but can you give me more details?
